Eating - Alternative Designs for Restaurants Design Competition

We can consider “Architecture” everything that has already been designed and/or built. That would define a realm of conventional solutions, often repeated in a self-referential system. We imagined a counterpart, a “Non Architecture”. A world of unexplored designs and countless possibilities, that if found, could enlarge and change permanently the boundaries of Architecture. A universe of chances and opportunities never challenged by architects before. A limitless field of investigation that includes everything that is not Architecture, yet.

Non Architecture Competitions aims to find unconventional and unexplored design solutions in the field of architecture. It consists in a series of nine competitions. All competitions have their focus on finding innovative approaches to specific issues of functionality in architecture, seeking nontraditional approaches in architect’s work.

Eating – alternative designs for restaurants, is the fifth Non Architecture Competition.

COMPETITION BRIEF

The aim of the “Eating” competition is to develop a design proposal for the restaurant typology, intended as a place of preparation and consumption of food. It is asked to the participants to create innovative and unconventional projects on this theme, questioning the very basis of the notion of restaurant.
While numerous top chefs have been reinventing the way food is prepared, fast food companies have revolutionized the way food is consumed and sold. In addition, food trucks and delivery services have been gaining more popularity every day, establishing a new intermediary step between the restaurant and the client.
With similar creative attitude, the participants are urged to create an artefact, merging considerable programmatic innovation and valuable design tools. The proposal can be a device, a piece of furniture, an interior design project, a pavilion, a building or a urban plan. Scale of intervention, program dimensions and location are not given and they can be arranged by the participants to better suit their project.
Some basic useful topics of investigation to approach the competition theme can already be deduced from the definition of “restaurant”:
restaurant noun [C] An establishment where meals are served to customers.

As follows, very essential aspects of the conventional museum can be questioned. – Can a restaurant be something different than a traditional Establishmet? Can it be based on an untraditional business model? And, can it be located in something else than a building? Can it be a network in the city rather than one single construction? Or can it be reduced to a smaller space, like a single room or just one object? – What do we consider a meal? And, what kind of meals selection should be operated? Should a restaurant base their dishes on clients desires? What kind of design would be required for a restaurant with an almost infinite choice of dishes? And what if a restaurant would sell only one kind of meal? how could design innovatively respond to such an approach? Or, what if the meal selection would be operated by the restaurant for the client, and not vice-versa? Could a restaurant know in advance what’s better for its customers? – Do meals necessarily have to be served in a restaurant? Can service be avoided and/or automatized? Or can there be an intermediate step between take away and traditional restaurants, where consumption ? In addition, could customers participate in the preparation of their food? Or could they instead be provided with an even better service, where consumption becomes the only phase in which they are involved, cutting waiting time and travelling? –

How can a restaurant become a place where food preparation is reinvented? How can food be prepared in a new way? And what kind of food, should be prepared and served? Can we reconsider what we normally serve as food, in order to improve the performance of a restaurant? What kind of food preparation process should be adopted to reduce waste, and how can waste be reused as a resource within the restaurant? – These are the questions to suggest to the partecipants as possible fields of investigation. Each project can tackle one or more of the issues suggested, as well as raising new ones in relation to the competition topic. Just try to be as creative and unconventional as possible.

Making – Alternative design for factories Competition Winners

THE 15 MOST REVOLUTIONARY DESIGNS OF FACTORIES

The winners of the second Non Architecture competition (www.nonarchitecture.eu) “Making – Alternative design for factories” have been unveiled, showing some absolutely innovative concepts for factories designs.

This was the second of a series of nine competitions, oriented at pushing architects and designers to rethink traditional architectural typologies. In this case factories – intended as building or a group of buildings where goods are manufactured – have been reinterpreted by participants from all around the world. The challenge was to develop an unconventional design for a building to make, with absolute freedom of location, scale and program dimensioning.

The Jury, composed of Alex Hogrefe (founder of Visualazing Architecture and partner at Design Distill); Aldo Sollazzo (founding partner at noumena and researcher at Iaac, Barcelona and Laurent Rosset (creator of Lorystripes and architect at Cebra) selected 3 winners and 12 honourable mentions from more than 100 subscribers.

The winning projects showed a variety of approaches, from extremely visionaries solutions, to more practical and business oriented strategies, going from a flying factory to machine that count the passing of time, from mobile factories that work with a simple click on an app to critique industrial presences.

– Winner: “Amazonia Pier” / Julien Nolin

Amazonia Pier design for a factory

Amazonia Pier is a phantasmagorical critique of the industrial presence of Free Trade
Zones, the result of globalization, where large foreign industries take advantage of
cheap taxes and even cheaper labor costs to produce their goods, by placing their
factories in less wealthy countries and cities.

– Winner: “The Cradles” / Aldrich Choy, Allan Chong, Chad Seah, Frances Lai

The Cradles design for a factory

An annual event where you will also be able to catch these unmanned drone factories in
action, extracting minerals and materials before manufacturing at the locations listed
below.

– Winner: “The Flying Factory” / Zheng Cui, Siyang Yu

Flying Factory design for a factory

The factory is lifted by drones, big and small, powered by solar system, with great
mobility and zero land coverage. Products are assembled by working robots and
delivered by smart drones, through online orders.

Making – Alternative design for factories Competition Honorable Mentions

– Honorable mention: “Machinapolis” / Niko (Seong) Hur

The project pictures a world where products are no long mass produced. Rather, it
celebrates the emergence of small and rapid prototyping that augments innovation and
creativity.

– Honorable mention: “Cowhouse” / Tamara Jamil

Cowhouse was borne from the idea that architecture can act as a site for physical
production and as a vehicle to manufacture change. Following lines of production and
reinserted into city landscape, patrons are invited to examine the life of cattle.

– Honorable mention: “Factory of the absurd” / Thaylini Cristine Luz BelinoBonfin, Miguel João Dias da Costa Pereira

The facture of the absurd is a machine that measure the passing of a time. The power
source is produced by a human operator, and so, he is the one in the wheel dictating
the productivity. If the man is tired, time slows down, if the man is in a hurry, so is the
time.

– Honorable mention: “The Mobile Factory” / Mark Andrew Lee

Gone are the days of working tirelessly. Now if you wish to be a factory worker you
simply sign up for it on the Mobile Factory App and it will brief you on the safety
procedures and instructions.

– Honorable mention: “Drift” /Chi-Kuan Im, On-U Leong

Every module of DRIFT consists of two parts – Production and Delivery sections. Robot
arms on each side of Production section provide corresponding services for procedures.

– Honorable mention: “A Factory Toward Fulfilment” / Naomi Rubbra, Leopold Taylor, Felix Yates

A world in which consumerism becomes redundant. Where the factory doesn’t
contribute to the problem, but becomes the solution. A Factory Toward Fulfilment takes
stock from those brave enough to break away from the conventions of the status quo.

– Honorable mention: “Urban Factory” / Sasa Ciabatti, Bilyana Asenova

The future factory transforms from a receiver of instructions to an open environment for
cooperation between suppliers and customers. Suppliers and customers find
themselves in a close collaboration at an early stage in the development of a new
product.

– Honorable mention: “PONOS” / Frixos Petrou, Sofia Nikolaidou, Emeline Dussaucy, Matteo Novarino

PonosTM promotes itself as #thefutureofwork – an obscure facility for providing any and
all kinds of services, from logistics to automobile prototyping.

– Honorable mention: “An Anarchistic Factory” / Rik Lambers

An Anarchistic Factory is an alternative for plain social housing which formalizes the
low-skilled, in-formal, in-efficient jobs that squatters are doing now; recycling waste. It
proposes to bypass a river and build a simple structure that takes in polluted riverwater

– Honorable mention: “RandomAccessMemory” / Cristina Cărcănescu, John Chia

Random Access Memory has a mnemonic agenda, aiming to marry traditional crafting
with digital manufacturing. The idea of crafting techniques becoming extinct leads to
over-romanticised solutions of prevention.

– Honorable mention: “Walk for Progress” / Wong Suen Yi, Chou Chia Yi

We propose a mobile device, “Waking-Print”, as our flyer factory.The low-tech working
device is designed to be too heavy to be pushed by one person, therefore it needs a lot
of people at the same time to operate it.

– Honorable mention: “Of Dead and Bread” / Rachid Jalloul

This crematorium bakery is set in a natural space. It is a public open space that allows
reflection and rejuvenation.

Background:

research. A series of nine competitions – used as a tool to trigger a collective
research – will be hosted to further develop an understanding of specific
architectural topics; aiming at enlarging the traditional boundaries of an often
self-referential architectural practice. Each of these competitions will be judged
by esteemed professionals from both education system and private practice.

– The most relevant proposals of every competition will be published in a book,
containing also jury comments and extra material gathered with a call for
materials.. Additional information is on our website.

It is asked to the participants to create innovative and unconventional projects on this theme, questioning the very basis of the notion of hotel. Recently many initiatives, such as Airbnb and Couch-surfing, have been proposing new interpretations of the function of hotels, developing extremely successful business models. With similar creative attitude the participants are urged to create an artefact, merging considerable programmatic innovation and valuable design tools. The proposal can be a device, a piece of furniture, an interior design project, a pavilion, a building or a urban plan. Scale of intervention, program dimensions and location are not given and they can be arranged by the participants to better suit their project.
